Owning a Maximo Vicente image is an honor passed down to those who not only have a fine taste but also strong faith, this carries on up to this day. The Talleres produced images that are perfect in artistry and workmanship. A commissioned image takes 3 to 12 months to complete and these images are fine and one-of-a-kind.
It was Maximo Vicente’s deep faith and exceptional craftsmanship that made his creations unparalleled.
